Using Gateway GPIO¶
Using Gateway GPIO may seriously damage your product or boiler. Be careful. Soldering or modifying the Gateway board will void the warranty.
NEVER EVER connect a relay or any other device directly to the Gateway. Use an optocoupler or other safety/isolation measures. If you don’t know what you are doing here you can easily damage your boiler/system beyond repair. So be careful! Don’t f.i. hookup an Aliexpress relay board without knowing how it works or how it is isolated from mains voltage.
Be careful not to introduce any noise or voltage/current spikes into the system. It is not designed to handle these external noise sources.
Do not feed any external voltage into these GPIO pins.
Most relays need at least 5V to operate. The S32 has 5V available internally, but the E32 only has 3,3V inside. So you need an external power supply to make use of it.
Never draw more than 100mA from the 5V or 3V3 power line when you are using the service jack.
When an external 12V power supply is connected to the Gateway 200mA current draw is permitted.
GPIO can only source/sink about 10mA.
Available GPIO pins¶
Gateway model S32 revision V1.1 had two headers with GPIO; J20 and J29.
J20 pinout from left to right: 3V3-GND-GPIO22 J29 pinout from left to right: GND-GPIO36-GPIO39-GPIO25-5V.
This board has both 3V3 and 5V available.
Gateway model E32 (all revisions) has one header with GPIO. Its J20 on the top of the board.
Pinout from left to right: 3V3-GND-GPIO32.
This board does not have 5V available, it runs completely on 3V3.
